Joyous news for Irish Ed Sheeran fans as the singer announces that he'll be doing not one, not two but three shows in Ireland next year.

The Shape of You singer will be playing Cork's Páirc Uí Chaoimh on 28 April, Thomond Park in Limerick on 5 May and the Boucher Road Playing Fields in Belfast on 12 May.

The dates form part of his +-=÷ x Tour, and, if, like me, you're wondering how to say it, it's pronounced 'The Mathematics Tour'.

Cheers, Ed.

Tickets for the Irish dates go on sale on Saturday 25 September at 8:00am, so set those alarm clocks now!

Ed's team have urged fans to only buy tickets through the appropriate channels, and to prevent ticket touting, a digital ticketing technology will be enforced.

In a statement, they said: "Once again, Ed and his team have a strict stance against anyone using unofficial secondary ticketing sites in order to try and stop fans being exploited when trying to buy tickets for his shows.

"The shows on this tour will use specially developed mobile digital ticketing technology which have safeguards in place to ensure genuine fans are buying genuine tickets, and to stop unofficial secondary ticketing sites, and unofficial ticket sellers, from being able to resell tickets at inflated prices and rip off fans."

They continued: "In order to make buying legitimate tickets easier on the day, fans are encouraged to sign up for an account with an official ticket vendor in advance of the sale. Fans who become unable to go to the shows will be able to sell their tickets to other fans at the price they paid + a booking fee through the official fan to fan face value resale platform at the place they purchased the tickets."
